Our Programs

For creating happier, more innovative and empowered people

SEMCO (Systemic EMpowered COmmunity)

PdEI (Process-designed Emotional Intelligence)

Who's it For?: CEOs or Senior Executives, to be part of a Forum of like-minded people.  


Program Objective:  Creates Forums for CEOs and Senior Executives. The objective of these forums is to balance the quality of our lives by openly sharing the biggest issues that deeply affect our personal lives; our relationships with family and friends; and our business.


Organizations exist to provide shared experiences among their CEO members. The most productive training comes from forming volunteer groups of 8/10 CEOS, from different, unrelated industries, that commit to meeting monthly to share their experiences. Although the early outcomes vary, over time, bonds are developed that allow the safety and comfort to openly disclose personal issues affecting their lives. These groups, or 'Forums' allows each to examine options from the shared experiences.
